There is so much about the resurrection that we don’t know. But God has told us some things, and what He has told us is our hope, comfort, and joy. The resurrection body is described in four words in these verses.
The Resurrection Body Will Be Imperishable
What is sown is perishable; what is raised is imperishable. (1 Corinthians 15:42)
Your resurrection body will never wear out, and it will never be sick. All limitations and disabilities we experience now in the body will be gone. The blind will see; the lame will walk and children in wheelchairs will run and dance. Those who’ve lost limbs will raise their arms in praise.
If you have some struggles with your body now, I tell you, you won’t be worried about this in the resurrection.
The Resurrection Body Will Be Glorious
It is sown in dishonor; it is raised in glory. (1 Corinthians 15:43)
Christ will change our lowly bodies, so they will be like His glorious body (Philippians 3:21), not merely Jesus’ resurrection body, but His body after the ascension. That’s what Paul saw on the road to Damascus, what John saw in the book of Revelation and what Peter saw in the Transfiguration.
The Resurrection Body Will Be Powerful
It is sown in weakness; it is raised in power. (1 Corinthians 15:43)
The body is going to have more energy, more physical capability, more stamina, more athleticism, more speed, more coordination, more durability than it ever, ever had because we’re not going to need the body less, we’re going to need it more. (Donald Macloed, A Faith to Live By, 277)
